Welcome to Literacy Learn, your trusted source for enriching reading resources and experiences for children!
Our mission is to empower teachers and parents by providing expert guidance, support, and a comprehensive range of resources designed to nurture and develop important literacy skills in children.
We understand the challenges faced by reading teachers, classroom educators, administrators, and parents as they work to meet the diverse needs of diverse learners. Our goal is to equip them with the tools and knowledge they need to unlock the full potential of every child.
Literacy Learn was founded in February 2021 by Katie and Laura, a dynamic duo (and sisters!), driven by a shared passion for empowering children and fostering a love of reading in young learners.
Katelyn Rigg, M.Ed
Katie is a highly experienced and knowledgeable professional. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in English Education and a Master of Education with a Reading Specialist Certification.
Over the course of her 16-year career in public schools, Katie has worked as a Certified Reading Specialist and Reading Teacher in both elementary and secondary schools. Her hands-on teaching experience includes teaching students with dyslexia, dysgraphia, and other learning differences.
Katie also holds the position of Assistant Professor of Education and also works as a subject matter expert (SME) in the School of Education. She engages with undergraduate students pursuing teacher licensure and tailors her classes to align with the research-based Science of Reading, helping to shape the future educators of tomorrow.
Katie is trained as a Classroom Educator through the Orton-Gillingham Academy. She has completed training in Phonological Awareness, Comprehensive, and Morphology through the Institute for Multi-Sensory Education. She has a certificate of completion from Lexercise for coursework in The Structure of Written English.
Laura holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Arts in Human Services. She has a certificate of completion from Lexercise for coursework in The Structure of Written English.
For the last ten years, Laura worked as a professional food blogger and content creator, sharing her passions through various online platforms.
When the unexpected circumstances of Covid-related school closings in 2020 propelled her into the realm of home and virtual schooling, she discovered a newfound passion for educating her own young children. It was through this experience of teaching her kids to read that Laura noticed a clear need for research-based literacy resources that were both high in quality and affordable.
All of our resources are influenced by the body of research known as the Science of Reading (Structured Literacy). We provide reliable and knowledgeable content that reflects current research and best practices in literacy instruction from the foundational building blocks of literacy to higher-level skills.
You’ll find a wide range of resources such as printable worksheets, activities and games, informative articles, and more to support literacy development for the various needs of diverse learners and children at different levels. We cover various topics such as phonics, spelling, and more.
To ensure that our resources reach as many individuals as possible, we kindly request that you share the links to our informative blog posts with fellow teachers, rather than distributing files or making paper copies. Your support in driving traffic to our website allows us to continue offering so many resources free of charge.
